Ease Into 10K - Week 3 Day 1

Not a bad place for a Saturday morning run!

What I did:
5 minute walking warmup, 5 minutes running/1 minute walking x5, 5 minute walking cooldown.

How I felt:
I tried to take it a bit slower than last workout where I really pushed the running pace. I think the GPS goes a bit haywire, because it says my running pace (8.12min/km) was slower than my walking pace (8.09min/km)! I kept running up the big hill, so I know that was pretty slow, but seriously my walking was NOT faster!

After watching Chi Running videos on YouTube, I focussed on landing midfoot and keeping my stride short. Definitely feels better.

Playlist highlights:
All Fired Up - Pat Benetar
Rock This Party - Bob Sinclar

How far I went:
A total of 4.79km today!
